“Step into the world of sound” is a work in progress based on Renia’s Papathanasiou Master’s degree study, which aims to integrate digital technology, in particular low-cost virtual reality hardware (Head Mounted Displays combined with hand movement tracking systems) in the process of music education for the deaf. The ultimate goal of this research is to offer the deaf a new or a different form of contact with sound through a ludic and interactive environment. An important objective of this effort is the use of technological aids as flexible and affordable solutions, which could easily be used by music organizations, schools, cultural institutions or even at home.
